Glendalough 13 Year Old Single Malt

70 cl

This excellent  whiskey from the Glendalough Distillery is matured in first-fill bourbon casks and appropriately cut to 46% using local Wicklow water. The original plan was to release this as a 12-year-old, as is traditional, but it was matured an extra year in honour of rugby great Brian O'Driscoll, a shareholder in the company. O'Driscoll wore the No.13 jersey for Ireland during his playing days. We will have to wait a few more years to taste whiskey from Glendalough's own Holstein stills, but this is very good for the money and has some deep spicy and peppery notes. Each bottle depicts St Kevin, who founded a monastery beside the beautiful lakes at Glendalough.

Tasting Notes from Celtic Whiskey Shop and Wines on the Green
Nose Deep butterscotch, honeycomb and rich lemon meringue balanced with citrus fruits and just a hint of a clove spice.
Palate Jumps to the front with an intense vanilla fudge luxurious sweetness and almost rock candy mixed with touches of fruit - lemon citrus, peach and dried apricot. This is followed by deep spices; red peppercorn and light cloves. A truly velvety mouth feel that just hovers on the palate. The finish leaves some spice lingering with under-layers of robust malt characteristics and deep oak notes. And again vanilla fudge reoccurs with a finish that lasts an eternity.
